. >> listen to what john boehner, the man who would be speaker, has said about what he wants to do about the economy, says he wants to restore those tax cuts for companies that ship our jobs overseas, he wants to cancel the obama tax cuts part of the recovery act for the middle class and raise taxes on 110 million families and yet he wants to borrow $700 billion to give millionaires and billionaires another tax cut and add to our deficit. >> mike viqueira is live at the white house. good morning. >> good morning. >> john boehner becoming a favorite white house target. >> no fewe than eight times did president obama mention john boehner's speech in the economic speech he gave last wednesday, cleveland being in the home state of john boehner, ohio. they are looking for someone to hit a punching bag as democrats are really underun the crunch n. they stand to lose their majority in the house of representatives. many experts say there's a better than even chance that's going to happen. and perhaps even the seate. that spells serious trouble for this white house with republicans leading the h

. >> thank you very much. i want to ask you what's just happened. the how minority leader, john boehner said he would consider extending the middle class tax cuts. if the only option i have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, i'll vote for it, he said, on "face the nation" this morning. what is your reaction? >> i haven't seen the comments. i noticed the qualifier if my only choice is. if he -- if he's truly saying that we can, as the president called for, get a broad consensus to extend the middle class tax cuts, we should do it. we shouldn't hold that hostage for the argument about the tax cuts just for the very, very highest income people. if he's for that, i would happy. in the past, we have seen some of these circumstances in which what appears to be the offer of doing the sensible thing in the light of day, there's a little bit of a feeling of, well if the president's for it, i'm against it, then it falls apart. >> he does obviously say he's going do everything he can to fight to make shaur that all the tax cuts are extended. if this does happen that he's going vote for an ext
republican john boehner, the man who might, repeat, might be the next speaker of the house of representatives and one of the democrats' election nightmares. how will voters respond to the attack and his new tax proposals with the economy in the tank and control of congress at stake? i'll talk about that with the economic adviser over at the white house and a leading critic republican congressman ron paul. also a florida pastor insists on going ahead with his plan to burn copies of the koran on september 11 this saturday. he is responding to charges of new attacks against americans and charges he would have blood on his hands. >>> president obama put on the brass nknuckles in ohio today fr an attack on the man who personifies democrats' worst fears for the fall election. that would be john boehner poised to be the new speaker of the house if republicans win back control of congress. just a short while ago mr. obama offered a stinging assault on republican economic policies from president bush to congressman boehner and he did it in boehner's home state. a few weeks ago the republican leader of
people ask me what john boehner would do if he were in charge of the house, i say, "john boehner does not need to have a conversation with me about what he would do if the republicans, indeed, take over the house and if, indeed, he becomes speaker of the us." he needs to have a conversation with his constituents in the state of ohio, talking about copay, looking forward to a yearly medicare check up, and one of the things that would go the fastest is that we have been given some new resources, wr tavis, to really crack down on medicare fraud, to go after the guys stealing from the system, to work closely with the attorney general. he and i have been in several places of the country and continue to go around. if those resources are gone, those are one of the first programs to go, and i do not think the taxpayers will find that to be a good idea. we have already returned $2.50 billion to the medicare trust fund, and we believe more can be found, and we can prevent and then prosecute these criminals, but those resources have to be available for that effort to go on. tavis: since you have
was out there, this was a john boehner document and that eric cantor has been kind of silent on it, but not everybody inside the house republican caucus thought putting this out was a good idea and if you're going to do it, watering it does was something everyone could agree on. >> social conservatives wanted more to be said about gay marriage. you've had people in the republican conference who wanted kind of a balanced budget. you also had people who wanted specific plans on social security and medicare. the republicans side -- not do any of those things. this is coming out before the election and they wanted to make sure they wanted an issue obama could attack. very political in method and probably won't be what they'll be doing this time next year if they're controlling congress. >> here's john boehner answering a question thursday. >> legislativlegislatively, how plan to honor families, traditional marriages -- >> if you look at house republicans over the course of the last year, two years or for that matter, the last ten years, you'll see that by and large, we have supported t
and 2003. john boehner's idea was go back to the last bush budget and keep all the bush tax cuts. isn't he making the democratic argument that your party's idea iset's go back toh? bus >> if you want to go back to the world before pelosi andr reid of december of 2006, a lot higher employment and higher income and the middle class was much better off. >> chris: you can't blame the whole nancial crisis on reid and pelosi. >> no, but you can blame the level of failure for the last two years and level of spendinu for the last four years on the liberal democrats both in the congress and in the wte house. i would make a deeper argument here. you show -- you do an economic run of wha this country would yment.ke at 4% unemplo with 5.5% of the country back to work fullime and bringing down the underemployment from 6% to 17% to 7% or 8%, increase in revenue because people are back to work. the president set an all time record for the number of americans on food stamps. that is not where you want to go. you want to go to a pay check, not a food stamp. >> back in the '94 mid terms you presided over a
